Google pushes Glass release date back to 2014

Sharon Gaudin | Aug. 20, 2013
Company changes its tune after sources leaked plans for a 2013 Glass ship date during Google I/O in May.

Olds also pointed out that privacy groups and the Congressional Bipartisan Privacy Caucus have raised a number of concerns in recent months as the Glass technology is distributed to early adopters, developers and critics through Google's Explorer program.

Critics cite Glass' potential use as a tool to surreptitiously snap pictures and videos of people. Google has pledged not to use facial recognition technology in Glass until strong privacy protections are in place.

Some businesses, such as Caesars Palace and Seattle's 5 Points Cafe and Bar, have already banned the use of Glass inside their establishments.
